I am a friend or relative of a resident

My aunts 86 years old and a little over a year ago living on her own became t troublesome for her. In February of last year she moved to The Amsterdam at Harborside since she moved there I been visiting her at least twice a month. Every visit has been a pleasant experience. I can tell the staff treats her extremely well and is polite and courteous. The food is great and she made a lot of new friends. I would definitely recommend this facility anyone looking for a nice place filled with friendly staff and great food

About The Amsterdam at Harborside

Alzheimer's and dementia memory care for Long Island seniors.

At The Amsterdam at Harborside, our goal is to create pleasant days and meaningful moments for our residents with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Our approach to memory support is truly unique — a culmination of two innovative theories.

Naomi Feil's Validation Method is based on the principle that all residents' opinions need to be acknowledged, respected, heard and treated as a legitimate expression of their feelings, regardless of whether or not the caregiver agrees.

Landmarks for Living® is a philosophy of memory care that emphasizes familiar schedules in a secure, dedicated neighborhood to create an environment that promotes choice, celebrates accomplishments and helps residents with Alzheimer’s or other forms of memory loss retain and restore independence.

The professionals at The Amsterdam at Harborsider are committed to the compassionate support of residents with memory loss. Our staff takes the time to learn the history of each resident and build a nurturing bond that goes beyond the basics of caregiving. And we deliver a high level of life-enriching care, encouraging the capabilities of each individual.
